Cultural awareness: what does it mean to be culturally aware in social care?

Take a moment to read this thoughtful and truly hopeful article from @SawyerD, Co-Chair for Skills for Care’s Race Equality Reference Group. The case for diversity, and being truly inclusive has never been clearer.

Thanks @RDG - I thought this was a great excerpt:

The aim of culture awareness would be to have the capacity to:

**** value diversity***
**** conduct self-assessment***
**** manage the dynamics of difference***
**** acquire cultural knowledge***
**** adapt to diversity and the cultural contexts of communities they serve.***

Let’s not get it wrong but learn from our mistakes.
